I am not looking for gateway games or anything that requires any teaching. Basically I am having a house bbq party like 30+ people and I want to leave some games on the tables to let them entertain and enjoy.

We're 25ish if that matters. We're just looking to have a good time and I am thinking of nostalgic games along the lines of maybe Connect 4?

What do you guys leave around to entertain guests in a larger group party?

A few I have nostalgia for (I'm about the same age):
Battleship
Hungry Hungry Hippos
Operation
Crossfire
13 Dead End Drive
Mouse Trap
If you really want to go for the gusto, there's always Fireball Island

EDIT:
This geeklist might take you back and give you some ideas.

you could probably just wander into a wal-mart game aisle, close your eyes, and grab 5 games at random.
